On Veterans Day, Tampa Bay Bucs Battle Troops in Madden, CoD World at War

November 11, 2008 -

The Orlando Sentinel reports that several members of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will celebrate Veterans Day by gaming with U.S. troops stationed overseas.

Pro vs. G.I. Joe, the nonprofit group which arranged the event, reports that Madden 09 and the brand-new Call of Duty: World at War will be the weapons of choice. Tamps Bay CB Phillip Buchanon, LB Cato June, TE Alex Smith and CB Aqib Talib will take on service personnel in Germany, Japan, Kuwait and a secret Middle-east location to be revealed during the match.

UPDATE: Activision deserves some kudos here as well. In a press release the publisher points out that it supplied CoD:WaW for today's event and will continue to do so for future Pro vs. G.I. Joe matchups.

Re: On Veterans Day, Tampa Bay Bucs Battle Troops in Madden,

uh oh wheres JT to claim that now those soldiers are going to be killing machines! oh wait.. they were TRAINED to be that way... damn.... well one more lost for him. Well that was a fast one.

kinda funny though since JT claims to "support our troops" but then condemns anyone who plays games... and i can't think of anyone during my time that didn't play games (mostly Halo, Wolfenstein, and need for speed)

and yes i know he's outta the picture (sorta) but i still enjoy the random kick to the groin :)

heh reminds me of the tournaments my squad used to hold, enlisted vs commissioned. Voted for the game and almost always ended up in Halo 2... mostly since we had more copies of that than any other game.

oh.. and when we weren't forced to forfit due to having to get back to work (cheap arse officers cheat IMO) we usually won :)

benohawkThat still isn't Steam pay royalties. At best it is Bethesda not being willing to relicense the music,07/27/2015 - 12:51pm
Infophile(cont'd) different service. This often happened with TV shows, where music was only licensed for broadcast, but not for DVD release. So for many older shows, they either have to relicense it or use different/no music for the DVD release.07/27/2015 - 12:36pm
Infophile@benohawk: It most likely comes down to the original licensing agreement for the music in it. Often those agreements only license it for the medium it first releases in, so it has to be re-licensed if it's rereleased in a different form or through a ...07/27/2015 - 12:35pm
benohawkWhy would steam be paying royalties on anything in quake?07/27/2015 - 12:01pm
black mantaI recommend using the KMQuake II patch which supports .ogg music files, then downloading the music from someplace, then dropping it in to a music folder into the \baseq2 directory.07/27/2015 - 10:32am
black mantaI got Quake 2 during the Steam Quakecon sale. Funny thing is, there's no music for it! Guess Steam didn't want to pay the royalty fees or something.07/27/2015 - 10:30am
black mantaLike EZK, I also have a backlog of games. Right now I'm playing Crysis 3 for the first time, and replaying Quake 2.07/27/2015 - 10:29am
E. Zachary KnightZippy, No. It is because I have a backlog of games a mile long and have not bought to many new games, which includes Mass Effect.07/27/2015 - 9:28am
